That's why I (and probably most others) contribute to this thread.
Exactly!!! Thank You for saying this.

Unfortunately most of the large lots are going to be scrappers. I currently don't have a seller that I am comfortable using that offers large lots.

Yes, there are plenty of good sellers on Ebay. Just be sure to make sure they have high feedback ratings. Buying in bulk on Ebay, imho, is the best way to accumulate pins to trade, and/or start a collection.

I honestly don't see the problem with scrappers. If you care, and can tell the difference, don't trade for them. Not all families can afford to spend hundreds of dollars on pins. I bought my son scrappers and expect him to get scrappers in return. It is about the fun of the trade and not, imho, about having the most and "best."

The entire purpose of this thread is to give pin traders GOOD advice on not trading or buying scrappers, and you are readily advising people to yes, please buy the scrappers and trade them. The more you pay for a pin the more chance of it being real, at a reasonable price. I'd gladly purchase real pins.

The point of this is how to spot a scrapper, so that when people are trading, they know what to look for and how to NOT trade for those fakes.

I would like to apologize for my posts. I was expressing my opinion and advice that I thought would be useful to some but not all. I will respect the purpose of this thread and no longer post anything regarding scrappers. I know it is hard to determine tone by just seeing typed words but I am being sincere.

I'm sorry I was defensive. This thread has been a dear friend for 4 years now.

I totally understand. No apology necessary. I was wrong in my thinking about this thread. Enjoy pin trading.

I just wanted to say as someone who reads, but does not post on this thread that I took your posts as being sincere.

I don't agree that posts should be deleted because people disagree with your opinion.

The reason this thread is here is to help people who want to avoid buying scrapper pins on ebay. Your posts did not take away from that and in my opinion should have been left alone.

There are 3 types of pin buyers out there.

1. people who know about scrappers and don't want them.
2. people who don't know what a scrapper is.
3. people who don't care if they buy a scrapper or not.

This thread helps give information to group 2 and lets them decide if they want to fall into group 1 or group 3.

Is the main page still being updated? Ebay member ffc should be added to the bad list most likely. I didn't buy a lot from her, but her story doesn't add up right: She claims that she went with a large group in 2009 and 2011 and the pins are from those trips. However, she keeps listing lots that include the new princess shoes line that came out in 2012. The story doesn't add up. It also seems excessive that someone would somehow accumulate 20,000 pins from 2 WDW trips... LOL... She would have had to buy nearly 3,000 pins....

One of our members is making an updated thread but it takes time to do so. The owner of this thread isn't around much anymore so with a new thread owner it may be easier to keep the first page updated.
